Summer Color Scheme: Blue + White

Posted by Caitlin on Aug 07, 2013

Our third favorite summer color scheme — blue and white! This inspiration board is fit for a modern bride who wants to incorporate art deco patterns into her stationery thanks to her sapphire emerald cut engagement ring. Who says you can’t be the only one wearing white? Since you’ll be wearing a Grecian goddess wedding dress, keep it casual and ask your bridesmaids to wear long chiffon dresses with strappy gladiator sandals. Choose a bouquet filled with peonies, dusty miller, and silver brunia balls and a blue tie along with a matching boutonniere for your groom’s attire and lapel, respectively. Don’t forget to pick a monogrammed cake that is almost too pretty to eat. Almost!

Invitations (from top to bottom): Minted and Jessica Lam 

Wedding invitations can be worded both, formally and informally, and should clearly state the location of the wedding, time and date. However, invitations should also show who is hosting the wedding. Don’t know the difference between a formal vs. an informal invitation?  Well, a formal invitation is used for large weddings and honors the bride’s parents by including, “Mr. and Mrs.” at the top whereas informal invitations are used for smaller, more intimate weddings and do not honor the bride’s parents. Instead, informal invitations include, “Together with their families.” Which invitation do you prefer? Let us know in the poll below. 

Which type of invitation did/will you use for your wedding?
